This is a simple getting to know you swap. All you have to do is write an introduction letter to your partner, at least the front of the page and half of the back.

The twist is you have to also send them one thing that represents something about you. If you're into stickers, send a small sticker bag. If you like ATC, make them one about yourself. If you're a candaholic, send them a piece of your favorite candy(new and wrapped). Just be really creative with it! It doesn't have to be anything big, but it can be if you're really inspired. Just send something you would like to recieve.

Recap: 1 letter 1 1/2 pages long about you. 1 item that represents something about you.

Requirements: I will allow unrated swappers with a well filled out profile. Other than that, nothing under a 4.7 and no unexplained 1s or 3s in the past 6 months.

If you have any questions about anything just ask.

Have fun, hopefully we will all make new friends and pen pals out of this!

Yes, as long as your profile is filled out go ahead and join.

I hope that my profile is filled out correctly and I wanted to say "THANK YOU" for allowing newbies. It is not easy to get started when not many seem to want to take a chance on the new people. Thank you again and I can't wait. Ò˜º

I too am brand new to this swap opportunity...glad you allow newbies! Do I understand that this is a one time swap?

Looking forward to this.... ye ha!!!

I want to join this swap because of the newbies I see here, I am not a newbie,but I was once, and know how it is to try to learn all the rules and follow them. I would be glad to have one of the newbies for a partner. I love swapping on swap-bot, and have made some good friends. Yeah, I have been flaked a couple of times, but the good swappers far outnumber the flakers. So follow the directions, ask if you don't understand and by all means don't join a swap if you don't intend to finish it.

@kimskreations all swaps on SB are one time swaps. The partnering process doesn't allow for multipart swaps. Please read the FAQ section for TONS of fab info on what makes the Bot tick.

I'm not sure I like the part about new and wrapped candy. I was hoping I could send some that was partially eaten. He he ha ha LOL. Just kidding. Amazing the things we hostesses have to spell out that should be SUPER obvious!!!

Signed up just before the deadline! This is my first swap, I'm really excited.

SmellyWriter 09/20/2012 #

Will the 'must be sent by' date be changed?

HappyCrafter 09/21/2012 #

Yay! Newbies are fun- they try so hard!

Letts 09/21/2012 #

I can participate? recently I join this page. regards from EL SALVADOR!!! :)

deviousdomi 09/21/2012 #

The sent by date will not be changed unless I get a lot of people needing a little more time. You could already have your twist done before partners are assigned.

Yes this is international so everyone joining should keep that in mind.

Thank you for allowing newbies to join this swap, it's so hard finding newbie friendly swaps. I'm very excited for this! (:

eviltigger 09/22/2012 #

As it seems my sore hands are unwilling me to write today, I hope I can start writing tomorrow so I can get my swap out on Moday. Damn my sore hands, :(

leahjett 09/22/2012 #
